DOT/FRA RIN: 2130-AC24 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Amendments Expanding the Drug Panel for FRA Post-Accident Toxicological Testing 
Abstract: This rulemaking would expand the drug testing panel for FRA's post-accident toxicological testing (PATT) program, which investigates the role of alcohol and drug use in serious train accidents. This rulemaking would also amend the requirements regarding the analysis of PATT results in 49 C.F.R. SS 219.211 to reflect that some of the drugs in the expanded panel are prescription and over-the-counter drugs that are not controlled substances. FRA has tested for the same basic panel of drugs since the beginning of PATT in 1985. Currently, FRA tests blood and urine specimens for eight drug classifications: alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, the opiates, the amphetamines, phencyclidine (PCP), the barbiturates, and the benzodiazepines. FRA would expand the PATT panel to include synthetic opiates, sedating antihistamines, MDMA and one of its analogues, and additional benzodiazepines. This rulemaking does not make any substantive changes to the prohibitions on the abuse of controlled substances and prescription drugs found in 49 C.F.R. SS 219.102 and 219.103.
